Daily Strength - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Each day I pray for strength
That only comes from God.
Can’t do nothing of myself,
For I am made of sod.

I cannot open my eyes
Nor can I wiggle my toes.
Couldn’t speak a single word
Nor twitch or flinch my nose.

I couldn’t sit nor stand,
Or even walk about
Without God’s sovereign power;
And that—without a doubt.

Therefore, I owe a debt today
Of gratitude in every way.
